You need to escape the <, or else bash parses it directly and tries to 
use {} \; as an input to find, which clearly makes no sense.

find /path/* -name "*.sql" -exec mysql -p password -h \< {} \;

This is almost, but not quite the same as the solution liz proposed - 
which also works in this situation, but may not elsewhere.
